failure on her part to not bring up more of the women's freedoms issues. mitt romney and paul ryan have very, very extreme positions on women's reproductive rights, and to sort of book end or to just end -- give it like five to ten minutes in what is the only vice presidential debate i think was really shortchanging the issue. that said, if paul -- sorry, if joe biden drew blood last night, i thought it was on this issue in particular. this is not an issue of contraception coverage. these aren't nuanced positions on, you know, the catholic church and reproduction. this is fundamentally the question of whether women have the right to choose, and paul ryan could not answer the question, and to many, many women from both sides of the aisle, this is something that you vote on. i mean, this is not a subtle sort of tax policy nuance. this is about having the choice to have an abortion and the dialogue that goes on between a woman and her doctor. and it was clear that the romney/ryan ticket is in a place that the obama/biden ticket is not. >> well, you made a point that i like to make. we

president biden and the debate. all about medicare. ever since mitt romney put paul ryan as his vice presidential running mate, democrats in the obama ticket have been running on medicare. the ryan/romney budget when it comes to medicare, only impacts future seniors, not current ones. but the democrats are trying to muddy the waters. as you mentioned the exit polls showed in 2008 that president obama lost the seniors if they do that this time, that's good news for romney. >> 174 different propositions will be on the ballot election day. the most since 2006, same-sex marriage, marijuana, health care, a handful of the initiatives to be voted on. are these initiatives telling us anything about what's on voters' minds? >> it certainly the big ones that are on my radar screen, craig, are gay marriage, they are marijuana legalization. not really big, big subjects as it receipts to the presidential race. in fact you haven't heard mitt romney or barack obama certainly talk about marijuana legalization much in any of the presidential debates or even in their town halls or rallies. but it is i

strategy, it's clear to me that the romney-ryan ticket had the only blueprint to get us out of this mess. we're not going to -- four more years of the same policies will get four more years of the same results. >> i think what we learned about paul ryan is he is as good as his boss at obfuscating what their plan is. he could not answer how he was going to pay for this $5 trillion lowering of the tax rates. he couldn't list a single deduction, a single loophole, that they would close, except he said we would go to congress. now, what they're saying is that we're not going to tell you, we're going to go to congress and, surprise, we'll see it after the election. it's the same stuff that -- >> where's the obama plan? he's had four years. he can't even get a budget passed. >> why? because you have a congress that has signed pledges not to cooperate. >> the obama budget was killed 535 to 0 because it raises the debt by $7 trillion. >> that is not true. >> yes, it does. >> we have got to in these final few weeks try to reach some resolution about this revenue issue. whether we raise revenue to

, paul ryan reprised the line republicans used repeatedly in making a case for a romney presidency. >> mitt romney, his experience, his ideas, his solutions is uniquely qualified to get this job done. at a time with a jobs crisis in america, wouldn't it be nice to have a jobs creator in the white house? >> that's the heart of his candidacy. he knows how to create jobs. romney points at his career in the private sector. binge capital specialized in debt buyouts, company that is result in bankrupt, and layoffs. he focuses instead on the few start ups he helps provide funding for, companies we recognize like sports authority and staples. the problem with spotlighting those businesses is their success hinges on a premise that is unpalettable as private equi equity. they explain efficiencies of sales, offer goods and services of small businesses but lower costs. staples keep their costs low by offering low wage sales associates jobs of $9 an hour. the national employment project named staples as one of the 50 low wage employers in the country. on one hand, they contend that small busine

for mitt romney and paul ryan. >> i don't think they're politicizing it. i'm not saying that because folks expect me to say that. i think will are questions about the time clock here, the unfolding of events. i appreciate the view that yes, it's been brief, but why? the first assassination of an ambassador -- u.s. ambassador, in close to 40 years. going unscathed. and to have all this bubble at this moment, i think the congress needs to get up to speed. the white house needs to be more forthcoming. the white house has created this store by the way they handled it coming out it have box. i give you the too many capsule and when the government spoke on it. but the reality is what they said initially and the facts have not lined up. they need to make it less of a story. to make it less politicized, and certainly the romney team rightly is talking about this. it's amazing tht front and center. >> to that same end, if what republicans are saying is true that the obama officials were trickling out the bad news then respect they politicizing the story as well? >> this is a ridiculous story.

fact that it's controversial. it says that we know that the romney/ryan plan won't work on those making under $200,000 a year. none of the studies have disprchb that. we don't know what the loopholes are. if it's about the mortgage interest deduction. a deduction which i could argue vigorously against its existence. but only against putting it into existence. once it exists to take it would have a devastating -- >> nobody is talking about getting rid of the mortgage deduction. they're talking about limiting it. >> won't specify what they are. >> conservatives say broaden the tax base, what's that a euphemism for is raising taxes on lower income people. to your point, to make it really simple, if you have a million dollars and i give you an additional $20,000. you don't have to spend that additional $20,000 because you've got a million dollars. if you have $20,000 and i give you $500. you're spending every dime because you have to. >> immediately. >> that's why lowering taxes on lower income people boosts the economy because they go to walmart that money. a rich person doesn't go
